Avid has announced that it will showcase its extensive set of innovations for the Avid MediaCentral Platform at BroadcastAsia 2017.

As the next phase of Avid Everywhere, Avid has extended MediaCentral—the industry's most open, tightly integrated and efficient platform designed for media—to the cloud, giving customers even more flexibility in their deployment models and licensing options.

Avid will also showcase end-to-end 4K/IP workflows, enhanced immersive workflows, and an expanded Alliance Partner ecosystem, with major advancements across its comprehensive tools and workflow solutions to create, distribute and optimize media.

Tom Cordiner, senior vice president of global sales at Avid, said: "With the transformation of Avid Everywhere from vision to reality complete, we're accelerating the pace of innovation—a key part of which involves extending media production to the cloud. We're looking forward to showing our preeminent community of customers across the Asia Pacific region how our latest innovations can help them address their most critical challenges—whether they're students, aspiring artists, educational institutions, creative professionals or media enterprises."
